On the eve of Persona 5, are you a Shin Megami Tensei or Persona person?

Ah, the age old question -- Shin Megami Tensei or Persona. Well maybe not "age old," as the original Persona was introduced in 1996, four years after SMT -- it's barely two decades old. But right around Persona 3 is where I starte...   read

Here's when Persona 5's free and paid DLC hits

Not that you need any more reminders, but Tuesday is Persona 5 day in North America and Europe. That date, April 4, is easy enough to remember. But there's a whole mess more to keep track of in terms of DLC. For everyone's convenience, Atlu...   read

Persona 5 has a hard block on screenshot and video capture

Easy-to-use, baked-in game capture functionality is one of the best aspects of this console generation. Taking screens and video or even streaming a game can be a mere button press away, and I've grown so accustomed to the feature on PS4, X...   read

Rock Howard makes his mark on King of Fighters XIV

I'm not really sure how, but SNK has really impressed with each of their DLC character announcements. While some folks (like myself) might have wanted Baenessa Vanessa, Whip, and Yamazaki in the base roster, it's been so good to see them co...   read

Review: Persona 5

When I was a kid, the Persona series was on the fringe of a niche. I had to be introduced to it on the original PlayStation by way of my cousin, who subsequently went on to show me Wild Arms and a few other classics. But after the resoundin...   read

Etrian Mystery Dungeon 2 is real and coming this year

A little over 10 years ago, Atlus released one of the defining RPGs for the Nintendo DS with Etrian Odyssey. Overwhelmed by role-playing games on the system, I skipped the series until The Drowned City and realized I had been miss...   read

Action RPG 'The Caligula Effect' comes west in May

The Caligula Effect is a game I've kept my eye on for a while now. Despite lacking a AAA budget title like Persona, it seems like an engaging game among the likes of Tokyo Xanadu and Akiba's Trip. It finally comes to North Americ...   read

Persona 5's swimsuit DLC will be free, rest of add-ons scheduled

So Atlus has decided to share the DLC schedule for the western release of Persona 5, and you know what? It's pretty tame by recent JRPG standards rife with extra scenarios and characters and the like -- basically everything is cosmetic. The...   read

Whip confirmed as King of Fighters XIV's first DLC character

King of Fighters XIV gets a bad rap. It's yet another great entry in the franchise even if the new art style makes it seem more stiff than previous entries. I'll admit it was tough for me to get used to at first, but after putting some time...   read

Persona 5 is exactly what the Persona series needed

Back when Persona 4 Golden released, I considered its advent as the sign that we as a society had hit the point of "Peak Persona." That game took the already-polished structure of Persona 4 - itself a refinement of&...   read

Rumor: Shenmue HD Remaster double-pack coming this year

With Final Fantasy VII and Shenmue making a comeback, it's been a weird past few years to reflect on. For many it was the golden era of gaming, with a resurgence of JRPGs into the mainstream, and oddball Dreamcast (and Xbox) adven...   read

Persona 5 still knows how to keep it weird in the Velvet Room

The Velvet Room is probably one of my favorite recurring elements in recent Persona games. Even if they have their own casts and distinct styles, I love having that one strange location to return to that ties it all together. In case y...   read

SNK teases new characters for King of Fighters XIV

As I've said before, King of Fighters XIV deserves more credit. Look, I get it if you were hesitant because of the art style. The pixelated visuals of the last few games were gorgeous, and eliminating it feels like a betrayal of sorts ...   read

Atlus just opened up the 25th anniversary Shin Megami Tensei site

My first ever experience with the SMT series was with its spinoff, Persona, back in 1996. My older cousin randomly picked it up because of the demonic imagery, and we spent hours huddled around a crappy TV playing it, switching off at key p...   read
